Editorial Reviews

"Two Anglican theologians, Samuel Wells and Ben Quash, have written an excellent textbook introducing ecumenical Christian ethics. . . This book is a gift for an instructor trying to write a syllabus, and a student who mastered it would be ready for further steps in academia." (Theology, 1 November 2011)

"The success of this publication and of the ecclesial ethics movement from which it comes is significant." (Regent's Reviews, 1 October 2010)
